I have successfully installed the Batle NET client, but I cannot manage to run the games with optirun

When I put optirun in the shortcut, it starts my nvidia card but after the Battle NET client starts, the Nvidia card stops and I cannot run the game with my graphis card. Is there a way to tell Playonlinux to keep optirun running?

Hi, sorry for the delay. I run it in the shortcut as

optirun /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux --run "Heroes of the Storm" %F




optirun /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux --run "" %F


For now, I'm running playonlinux from the command with :

optirun playonlinux


 and it seems to work, so the NVidia card stays on, but I would like to know if there is a way that the discrete card only starts when I run the game.

Not having any such hardware to test, the first attempt at integrating that in PlayOnLinux failed.

Any patches welcome.
